Design Features

  • Custom surface widths to accommodate many different production requirements.

  • Formed 14-gauge stainless steel top containment ceiling.

  • High-efficiency blowers with quick access filtration housing.

  • Blowers and housing assemblies are integrated into conveyor design for clean look and reduced footprint.

 

Air Combiner

The Descon Air Combiner is designed to single file empty cans from mass for delivery to a rinser, or filler on demand.

  • Precision cross member design and placement for absolutely true, level surface transport surface.

  • Polished 14-gauge stainless steel louvered deck plate.

  • Directional inverted air louvers are designed to generate a consistent air film membrane.

  • Quick removable top containment deck to access possible damaged cans and allow for easy cleaning.

  • Side rails are fixed position and factory mounted.

  • VFD controlled blowers to modulate can flow according to control state.

 

Why Transport with Air?

The transport of empty cans in single file or in mass has several advantages over conveying on tabletop / mattop chains.

  • Faster priming of the line during a shift start, or flavor changeover.

  • Faster recovery of can population in the event of a line interruption in which a can void has developed.

  • Reduced back-pressure during line stoppage.

  • Flexibility in modulating can speed during different conditions, such as priming the line or backup.

  • Lower energy costs with blower motors operating at more consistent rpm’s and with minimal friction load.

  • Lower maintenance costs without chain, wearstrips, sprockets and bearings.

 

Speed Control to Suit

Descon Deck Jet systems are supplied with programmable blower control to suit the specific application.

  • Variable air flow is achieved by means of variable frequency drives.

  • Variable speed changes for different actions such as line priming are programmed for automatic function.

  • Blower presets are entered through graphical operator interface.

  • Flow distribution to one or several single file lane formats to feed multiple rinsers.
